Being involved in an accident with a commercial truck can be terrifying. Commercial trucks tend to be larger, and the impact can feel intense.
In addition to the damage to your vehicle, you likely also have injuries. In a matter of moments, expenses from the accident can start adding up quickly, especially if you cannot work. Unfortunately, dealing with an accident with a commercial truck can be challenging.
These are some of the complications that can arise out of commercial truck accidents.
Several parties involved
In a typical accident, you would only need to deal with yourself, the other driver, the insurance companies and the attorneys. While that list may seem long, in a commercial truck accident, the list gets much longer and can add other parties, such as:
- Vehicle manufacturers
- Trucking companies
- Trucking company insurance carriers
- Government entities
- Cargo loading companies
These additional parties tend to add more elements to the dispute. Also, with so many people involved in your car accident claim, it can feel incredibly intimidating.
Knowing when you need help
Facing a commercial truck accident claim on your own is a frustrating endeavor. Instead of driver versus driver, it becomes several different experienced parties trying to break down your case.
When you are injured in a commercial truck accident, seeking experienced help with your claim is essential. Getting help with your claim means you can spend more time recovering from your injury instead of dealing with a complex legal claim by yourself.
